From Confession to Film

To celebrate the 100th XConfessions.com film, I’m going to take you through how your sexual confession goes from a fantasy in your head, to an erotic short film for the world to enjoy.


Hey Lusties! I get so many emails from you all wondering how the process of XConfessions works, so I thought I’d do a step-by-step guide for you! I make films based on the confessions submitted to my site XConfessions.com. Not because I don’t have imagination(!) but because my mission as an ethical adult filmmaker is to create movies that you want to watch. That are different from mainstream porn because they reflect your desires and your fantasies. That respect the complexities of our desires – whether we want romance, kink, doctors, kittens, pilots, teachers or vikings! No stereotypical stories, no “2 girls, 1 couch and a large cock”, no nasty pop-ups, but films that explore desire, sex, orgasm and pleasure in ways you may never have seen before. Buckle your seat-belt, it’s going to be a wild ride!

🔥 You Confess

You submit your confession onto XConfessions! It goes through moderation (we get a lot of spam), then we post it with an image from our collection of artists.

BigLittleSwinger posted this confession, with the image chosen by my Content Department to match!

Our daughter started 1st grade in a new school in Brooklyn a few months ago.

There is this particular couple whose kid is getting along very well with our kid, and they are pretty cool and very attractive. We’ve heard from other parents that they are a power couple here in NY, he is a talented architect and she is a fashion designer.

Is it weird that I’m having sexual fantasies with them? Is it weird that last week I decided to act on those feelings and somehow got myself an invitation to their place?

🔥🔥  Your confession is chosen!

I read all of the confessions, and choose 2 every month to adapt into films! This time, I chose Hot Power Couple At Our Daughter’s School by BigLittleSwinger. I loved the idea of trying another foursome scene after Pansexuals and Sweet But Psycho, especially if I could include sex between the men as well as the women. So rare in mainstream porn! When I choose my confession, I add it to the “coming soon” page:

🔥🔥🔥 I choose my cast

With the help of my Talent Manager Drea, we find out who is available, who wants to perform with who and who would be best for the film. Lina Bembe, Rooster, Parker Marx and Katana ended up being the 4 most perfect performers for this film.

Me and my pre-production team!

The final cast:

🔥🔥🔥🔥 Pre-Production

I write the script, and then we draw up a storyboard, then me and my team find a location and decide on final details before production, such as wardrobe, art direction, hair and make-up, lighting and cinematic style.

So little time, so much to do!

🔥🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥   Production!

Production (or the shoot) normally lasts one day, between 10 and 12 hours of shooting! There’s a lot of waiting around of course, but also a lot of hard work and creativity, last minute changes and emotion.

Lights, camera, sex!

Before shooting the sex part of the film, I go through some directions with the performers, and when we turn the camera on, I try to let them flow as much as possible.

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 That’s a wrap!

Postproduction and editing begins. Inés, our in-house editor, edits the film and coordinates external freelancers to do the color grading and sound mixing. We then add graphics and a small part of the original confession at the beginning of the film, so you can see what the person’s original fantasy was – and how I’ve interpreted it!

Inés editing the footage!

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Design

Cristina, our Graphic Designer, designs a selection of posters for me to choose from. Here are the ones that didn’t make the cut:

You can see more of Cris’s unused posters that are works of art in themselves on my blog here

and the final poster:

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Release

And it’s complete! You can stream it in HD, or download it, with subtitles from XConfessions! Plus leave your comments and discuss with other watchers (and me!) what you thought.

So now you know…. Come on,  now submit your own sexual fantasy in the hope it will go through the same process.

Confess now! And maybe soon I’ll shoot your film…
